I have been using integrated graphics on my old pc for a long time, decided to finally stick a new PSU and graphics card in it for a better low end gaming experience.
My on board graphics works perfectly, but when i plug my monitor in to the video card, i don't get any signal, plus while the card is installed windows does not recognize that its plugged in to the PCIE slot at all. Only my integrated chipset is found in the device manager.
PSU works great, has enough wattage and everything. Plus my video cards heatsink gets warm. I'm not sure if that can be a good sign that the slot is working? Also, everyone i know has a laptop, so i can't even try the card on another PC to see if its the GPU that has a problem.
Thanks for any help. I'm incredibly desperate to finally be able to play even low end pc games at a higher FPS than 15.
Could be an OEM BIOS limitation. Could also be that the integrated graphics must be switched off (in the BIOS) although I doubt it since it should still show up in Windows. What graphics card is it anyways?
